UFO's, Space, and Opioids
by Debbie Rosenberg
Several news stories have caught my eye lately. It's been quite awhile since I paid much attention to possible UFO stories, which were always popular in college at parties, but news of a US Navy pilot sighting caught my attention and makes me wonder what the future brings. Back at the beginning, who would have imagined the International Space Station and trips to Mars? We've certainly come a long way from the first space flights. In honor of these reports, I thought I would share a few of our newer books regarding Space and UFO's. The other stories that caught my attention lately involve the Opioid Epidemic in the United States, from Purdue Pharma's proposed opioid settlement to stories of addiction throughout society.
